Perkiomen Bridge Hotel

1 E. Main Street
According to local tradition, the oldest portion of this
building was erected in 1701 for Edward Lane. By 1798, the
inn consisted of a two-story stone building measuring 33 x
25 feet and a one-story stone kitchen of 30 x 20 feet. It was
further expanded in the 1800s and became a fashionable
hotel and summer resort due to its location along the
Perkiomen Creek. Listed on the National Register of Historic
Places in 1985, until recently it was the oldest hotel in
continuous operation in the country. The nearby Perkiomen
Bridge was completed in 1799 and is one of the oldest stone
arch bridges still in use in the United States. Private
